Stanley Wayne Robertson was spared the death penalty Wednesday by jurors who deliberated more than 21 hours before sentencing him to life in prison without parole.

Jurors found there was mitigating evidence in Robertson's capital murder case that warranted a life sentence instead of execution, the punishment prosecutors were seeking for the 45-year-old defendant.

    What more could be necessary for someone to get the death penalty?

    How much more would he have had to do to poor Annie Tolliver, for him to pay the consequences with his life?

    What was the mitigating issue that could have toned down the sheer terror he inflicted on an innocent woman?

    It seems to me that there was only one punishment that could fit the crime ... death. He is a violent, unrepentant, evil monster that has killed and will kill again.

    I hate to second guess the jury but it appears that they were swayed by their emotions rather than the facts. Maybe there was one holdout juror that couldn't vote for the death penalty no matter what.
